The 24-track genre-defying psychological horror album five years in the making is finally complete! [Feind] tells a story of hatred, fear, and despair, and illustrates how, if we’re not careful, these things can transform us in to monsters. This is releasing alongside its companion album, [Shyft], my answer to the darkness. Speaking of which…
The 24-track synthwave-oriented album five years in the making is finally complete! [Shyft] is the companion album to [Feind], a story of recovery from hatred and despair, of reflection and learning to love life again, finding the will to fight for our shared future.
This was a huge undertaking over the course of five years that taught Shyft a handful of new techniques along the way, and is an audio recollection of years of isolation, fantastical dreaming, tremendous rage, and hopes for a better future than what was promised. Our future has been cancelled. Stay angry, stoke your fighting spirit, but don’t forget to love just as fiercely, and don’t let go of your sense of wonder.
Click here for the spooky stuff; click here for the fantasy synth. Spotify and elsewhere streaming coming soon.
So I know that the remix EP, the one hundredth release on the parent label, was supposed to drop first. I know, but it’s not done yet. K.H.D. did a remix; Shyft did a remix; K.H.D. might be doing an other one and Predaking might be doing one. It’s a precarious thing, ordering a group of artists. So that’s not done. But do you know what is done?
This mother fucker. A Synthetic Experiments album. Fifteen tracks. Three years in the making. Inspired by gothic horror and steam punk, but still hard to the core. A concept album representing the darkest and most sinister villains of the Shyfted Dreaming universe, and their big machine designed to systematically unravel space and time. Sure. That part of the story isn’t written yet, but this album sure is!
So we shall continue to await SHM100 (and per haps in an other month it will have to be released as is), but the new sublabel, Shyfted Minds of Hard Core, had to be geared up, so that no other releases need be delayed, and it needed a nice, big, style-blazing album to do so. And now it is made available here, for the low, low price of totally worth it (coming to major retailers and Spotify and the like in December).
